This article is from BMC Public Health, volume 11.AbstractBackground: Of 136 million babies born annually, around 10 million require assistance to breathe. Each year 814,000 neonatal deaths result from intrapartum-related events in term babies (previously “birth asphyxia”) and 1.03 million from complications of prematurity. No systematic assessment of mortality reduction from tactile stimulation or resuscitation has been published. Objective: To estimate the mortality effect of immediate...

This article is from Pediatric Research, volume 74.AbstractBackground:: Intrapartum hypoxic events (“birth asphyxia”) may result in stillbirth, neonatal or postneonatal mortality, and impairment. Systematic morbidity estimates for the burden of impairment outcomes are currently limited. Neonatal encephalopathy (NE) following an intrapartum hypoxic event is a strong predictor of long-term impairment. Methods:: Linear regression modeling was conducted on data identified through systematic... Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3873711
